About La Villetta Ristorante Italiano

Dining Italian Style is not just for sustenance, it"s the coming together of family & friends. At La Villetta, the meals prepared by Chef Maria are Old World recipes and her own creations prepared and served to her family and friends for over 25 years. From Caserta, Italy, she learned her culinary art under the tutelage of Chef Angelo Mirra. Maria with Angelo moved to Montreal, Canada via Basil, Switzerland where they worked as a team for eight years at the Hotel Simblone. In Montreal, the first of three 4-star restaurants opened and introduced Maria's style of Italian cuisine. Under the management of Maria's son & daughter, these restaurants still serve the people of Montreal Casa Cacciatore. In 1985 SALVATORE SELLITTO and MARIA COSTANZA opened Casa Cacciatore in Pompano Beach Florida. For 7 years their patrons from Boca Raton demanded they bring to Boca their real sense of Italian hospitality. CUCINA - RICERCATA E GENUINA BUON APPETITO

Cannot beat Maria's home made pastas. Loved the cheese ravioli appetizer... Crowned by the sea-salted snapper - which is a gift from heaven !! Hard to order anything else. Accompanied by green veggie and potatoes. Perfection !!

Really nice surprise. Trying new restaurants and thought the food was excellent, presentation and service was outstanding. True representation of Italian cuisine. They even have a tiered dessert cart that looked amazing. We were so full to try. We will have to come back.

I was not pleased with my dinner, but others in our group of 4 thought theirs were good. Waiter was extremely slow, maybe had too many tables to tend to. It was noisy, had to lean in to be hear others talking. Not planning on returning.

We are regular customers & late diners, so we know how hectic it will be before 9:00 pm.
The food is excellent but there is an initial delay until we get attention.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, especially for special occasions. Their signature salted yellowtail is spectacular as are many of their other dishes. I would definitely highly recommend it.

Disappointing. We had been before and liked it enough to come back. Unfortunately, the food was not as good and a dish of plain pasta with butter for an 8-year-old was $19.

There are at least a dozen of these authentic New York Style Italian Restaurants in Boca Raton, and they're all great.
But when I need a place for a special occasion La Viletta is the one I choose.
The food, the sevice the ambiance is always great.

We were not happy with this restaurant. They will not accept substitutes, the maranara sauce is very acidic and the side were very expensive. There are much better Italian places in Boca.

Great Italian food in a small neighborhood strip mall. From the valet parking cars to the knowledgable wait staff, everything was perfect. The food is outstanding,especially the snapper, which is baked whole and deboned tableside. Great restaurant.

Visited on Valentines Day. Quite busy but we were never rushed. Food and service were quite good. This was our first time and we expect to return. Only criticism is that when the restaurant became crowded the noise level made conversation difficult.

Service was excellent and the food was passable Italian up scale, but the value is not there. Pretty skimpy on apps and entrees, and the pricing is out of wack with what they are doing. Not worth the money.

This restaurant used to be packed and delicious.
Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. I was surprised to find several empty tables on a Saturday evening.
But after having dinner, we recognized that it was because the kitchen has been seriously compromised.
Will not return.

We were seated in the "open table" section, in the bar next to the cigar smokers! This despite many empty tables in the dining room. Good food but not worth the snooty behavior of all employees.
